My Next Blogging Seminar: June 7, NYC

Strategic Blogging for Organizations, Women’s Research Centers, and Feminist Experts

JUNE 7 (time TBD)
Kimmel Center
/ New York University

Sponsored by the National Council for Research on Women, this session will take place during the Council's annual conference this year (June 5-7).

In this 3-hour intensive, I'll lead participants through the basics of blogging—both logistical and philosophical. Participants will leave with a sense of the ways in which blogging is changing the media landscape—especially for women!—and tools for starting one for your organization or improving one that’s already off the ground. Topics will include: young feminism and activism online, the momosphere, possibilities for personal voice, and how to publicize events and publications through blogs.

There is no separate registration required for the workshop. To register for the conference, click here. Questions? Please don't hesitate to email me at girlwpen@gmail.com.

"I had just started my own blog when I attended Deborah's workshop. Deborah opened my eyes to the vast world of feminist bloggers and got me excited about the number and kinds of people I could reach. She also exposed me to options – and vocabulary – that I just didn't have. Blog carnivals? Springwidgets? A feminist bloggers conference? Who knew? Not me! Not until Deborah's workshop, packed with inspiration and instruction."
- Nancy D. Polikoff, Professor of Law, Washington College of Law, American University

Deborah, wish I could go! Perhaps you could offer a downloadable video of the workshop in the future as a paid option on your site? I'd be willing to pay for that.
